that the investments we make in education and the infrastructure are devastated in the ryan budget, and he makes false promising that could be kept about reducing the tax rates. the only people that are protected in the ryan budget are the wealthiest and the largest corporations. they tell the rest of america, you are responsible for managing this debt that we have gotten into. our budget takes a very different approach. it is balanced in terms of making sure we move to responsibly managing our debt and deficit, getting our deficit down to less than 3% of the gdp, as every economist in the bowls simps simpson, all the gang of six have focused us on doing, but also make sure we make that investments to keep our middle class strong. >> the point of our budget is to make sure that we show that we have a ten-year plan, if we can put it into place, we will get our economy moving again, we will begin to manage our debt, and we will quit doing this management by crisis where every time we turn around, the republicans say they'll shut the government down if we don't cut more. we need to have a responsible pla

no sympathy for the brown v. board of education decision. when it was a crisis like little rock crisis, eisenhower did follow the law. he followed the constitution. he did what a five star general did. the hated this whole thing. anti-particularly didn't like adam clayton powell. he thought he was a demagogue. so i'm not sure what nixon's role in this, nixon was, you, nixon was very friendly with them because they kind of like each other. [inaudible] >> the issue was that he was actually influenced by advisers to him he won't be able to make a decisive decision not to include. so what i'm saying is that you feel as though nixon's personal politics towards african-americans during his administration were negatively affected by his advisors that surrounded him during that administration? >> i don't think the. you're talking presidents nixon, not vice president nixon spent but i'm talking about an event that happened during his vice presidential speeches are not aware of one or the other, i'm sorry. >> i think that richard nixon attitude towards african-americans were shaped by some assum
. we as a society have an obligation to do more to educate our young people about rape. they need to know it is a horrible crime of violence. it simply is not okay. >> and then there's the social media aspect of it all. prosecutors admitted that without those texts and those awful cell phone pictures they really didn't have much of a case. judge hatchet presided over one of the juvenile court systems in the country in atlanta before becoming a television judge and kathryn redmond is founder of the national coalition against violent athletes. judge hatchet, i thought of you immediately when i heard these verdicts and when i saw those kids and when i heard the reaction from the victim's mom and i wondered because this was so powerful and there was so much coverage on tv and social media, will this be the wake-up call that's needed for young people, many of whom you've seen come through your courtroom? >> absolutely. i presided over far too many cases like this. as i said last week, this really needs to be a teachable moment. i say that not just as a judge but as a parent that we nee
and ownership. when we're talking about the ability to educate your kid as you define, as you decide as a parent. those types of things really speaks to that much more than anything else in my view. >> michael steele, thank you very much. >> good to be with you. >> thanks for joining us and speaking back. >> and next, the president's trip to israel -- can he mend a strained relationship? >>> and still ahead, proof of citizenship. the supreme court takes up arizona's voter i.d. law today. this is "andrea mitchell reports" only on msnbc. i'm a conservative investor. but that doesn't mean i don't want to make money. i love making money. i try to be smart with my investments. i also try to keep my costs down. what's your plan? ishares. low cost and tax efficient. find out why nine out of ten large professional investors choose ishares for their etfs. ishares by blackrock. call 1-800-ishares for a prospectus which includes investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses. read and consider it carefully before investing. risk includes possible loss of principal. which shirt feels more expensive? i g

to the hispanic chamber of commerce in los angeles and talks about increasing federal aid for education to hispanics and african-americans. who in the party right now, who in the republican party gives that speech? >> i think the problem is deeper than that. even when they talk about aid to the less fortunate, they make it sound like they're dropping nickels in a tin cup. what mitt romney misses and what the republicans miss is that even rich people need government. even if it is just to build the runways for their golf stream jets. it is not a case of charity. we're all in this together. this is the essential message that barack obama ran on with robert and ran on again in his re-election campaign. the republicans don't get that basic concept. even when they're talking about government programs, they're talking about them as charity. they're not charity. >> steve schmidt we're out of time on this segment, need a quick word before you go. your reaction to cpac? >> i said a couple weeks ago, it has become the star wars bar scene of the conservative movement. it was certainly that and mor
and our educational institutions is our attention to the poor and the social justice. he has taken name francis, the apostle of the poor, and has talked about the poor and marginalized ever since he started. i think the theme of poverty and taking care of the poor and as he said on sunday, a church of the poor and for the poor is going to be a theme of his papacy. >> by the way, father martin, i have joe in the second round of the tournament. claudio, you mentioned the dramatic gesture there of the pope getting out of the motorcade and working the crowd like that. i just think the inaugural parade here in the united states when jimmy carter broke with tradition, got out and backed down pennsylvania. how dramatic that was. does that say anything about how the relationship of this pope, with catholic worldwide will be different than the relationship benedict had with them? >> indeed it is. the pope breaks with the rules and breaks with tradition and vatican security as well. on sunday, for instance, he was holding a small mass inside the small parish inside the vatican walls. of course, t
year for speaking out for the rights of girls to receive an education started at a high school for girls in england today. in a statement, she said i am excited that today i have achieved my dream are going back to school. i want all girls in the world to have this basic opportunity. i miss my classmates but i am looking forward to meeting my teachers and making new friends in birmingham. she and her family will be staying there while she continues outpatient treatment. >>> up next, ten years ago at this time george bush announced the start of the iraq war. an intelligence analyst working in the cia then will tell us what it was like dealing with dick cheney in those days.

get board of education busy. president obama made his march madness picks today. is he going with a final four of louisvilleville, florida, ohio state, an eventual champion indiana. >> republicans were not amused by this. the rnc put out an ad. louisiana congressman remarked his final four picks are are now late but his budget is late by 45 days. i think that shows the priorities. his final four picks actually made it on time. since the demands on our time are not nearly as important, the panel and i have come up with our own final four picks. all right, mara, who do you have? >> i wanted to give steve my proxy on this since i don't follow college basketball. i did ask around at work and came up coincidently with the exact same for the president picked. i cannot defend them or describe how we did this in any way, shape are or form. diver to my better here. >> i have louisville, wisconsin, michigan and indiana. three of the four teams are big ten teams. best conference in basketball. indiana beating wisconsin in the final. >> bret: okay. charles? >> marah echoing obama again.
to listen to the message you have about the economy, about health care, about education. because they're so turned off by the rhetoric about illegal immigration. and that i think is what ari and the republican party is talking about now. >> so john berman has covered politics for a gazillion years. richard, you are my nonpolitico. are you moved? is there a sense of a relaunch? >> i'm the type of person that i'm to be persuaded, right some but to me, i know especially this 18 to 29 group, i just feel like it seems like marketing. and i hear the word brand and to me that makes it seem that it's not authentic. so i think social issues, but this idea of the package and -- it just seems like a branding and a marketing thing and i think a lot of young people are pretty wise to that sort of approach. >> so let's go right back then to jake. when you look at the cpac, right, and the straw poll that came out of that, you had rand paul winning with 25%, right behind was marco rubio, something like 23%. and you had contra ticker to me contradictory messages. again, polar opposites on the state of the r
